Here are some pics of a VFT I picked up a few weeks ago from a local garden center. The poor things were in those little plastic domes inside a warm, humid greenhouse. Though, I assumed they were a new shipment since they looked ok, with red traps, yet some of their new leaves were much smaller, and a bit were rather brown. Anyways, I assumed since they were in full growth, that I'd take one with me to home, and then grow it in my terrarium, at 80* F, 82 watts of light. It quickly grew some new, nice-sized one-inch traps, with a light pink/red inside. In the summer, I'll prolly take it with me to Santa Barbara when we are in vacation, and in July/ August, put it into a nice, long, dormancy. I know, most people despise it when other people grow VFT's in terrariums, but mine seems to like it. It's even sending up a flower stalk.
Here are the pics of its newest traps:
And here is one trap that the plant was growing when I bought it, and it is the smallest that my plant has.
Here's a pic of it when it just opened:
And after a few days:
And finally, the whole plant:
All of the long, brown/black leaves are old ones. The leaves on the surface of the soil, and the newest ones still unfolding, started growing in my terrarium. So far, I've only fed it two sow bugs.
